They convinced me to wear the mohawk wig sideways! My friends' flight was delayed an hour, but in the meantime it was fun to greet other folks arriving and to play with the kids waiting for them!
Hola Amigos! This Blog will document a 15-day adventure I took recently with my good friends, La Familia Simonello (no, that's not salmonella!) Julia, Michael (hubby) & Michael (son, age 12) were repeat visitors to the coastal hotel I manage here in Ecuador, but they hadn't seen much of the rest of the country. I planted a seed when they came last November, setting forth ideas for an itinerary which would include Andes & Amazon adventures. They took the bait and flew into Quito on July 9th. My friends Annie & Orlando who started up "The Laughter Club" convinced me to join them in donning a clown wig to meet Julia & family at the airport!
Since Julia & her two Michaels are all great photographers, I didn't bother shooting any photos of my own. The following pix were gleaned from over 2000 shots (taken on three I-phones & one fancy Nikon). With their permission and blessings I present some favorite moments from our awesome journey! Thanks, Simonellos, for sharing these images, and a joyful fortnight of travel and awe.
